Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—Two young brothers, nicknamed Bear and Squirrel, enjoy spending time with one another. They go on nature hikes, rake leaves, and sleep outside in tents. These simple pleasures highlight the siblings' closeness throughout the year: "In spring we bring out balls and bats./We look for frogs. We pet strange cats." Told in uncomplicated verse, one short line per page, this unassuming book captures the warmth and delight of being best friends. The rhyming is easy and predictable with only one instance in which the ending words do not work as a pair ("jokes"/"coats"). The childlike, unembellished watercolor and pencil illustrations fit the text perfectly, and the muted colors underscore the simplicity and joyful intimacy of the boys' relationship. This title would work best in small-group readings and one-on-one sharing.—Wendy Woodfill, Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN

Format: Hardcover
Adorable cartoon-like illustrations by Leo Landry accompany this happy ode to brothers everywhere! The cute rhyming text flows really well. "We puddle jump. We swing from bars. We make up shapes in clouds and stars."
